another dragon photo

Dragon Photo

Almost all Filipinos have at least one drop of Chinese blood running through their veins. They are one of the very first settlers here in the Philippines and until now there are largest minority groups, making up about 2% (1.5 million) of the country's total population. Even our national here Jose Rizal is a chinese from the Cua clan of Fujian of China!
Since it's still technically new year for them...I thought I'd post another dragon photo, this time, a display at Festival Mall, one of the biggest mall in the southern part of Manila. This one is as eleborate as the one I posted below but more colorful.
Again Kung Hei Fat Choi!

Yes, your blog does look good. Perhaps you can answer my question - watching the dances in chinatown yesterday, they seemed to be performing into/for the shopkeepers. Is there any story there? Are they bringing something to them?

Hi Ham! Yup, they are bringing in goodluck to the businesses. The very reason why they do the dragon dance is to bring good luck to the people watching the dance and to everyone around them. The dragon, to the Chinese represents good luck.
